. romney has to connect with voters and seem relatable. >> joining us now to talk about this -- a guest from politico. thank you for being here. so much at stake for mitt romney on wednesday. what does he need to do to make an impact? >> he needs to change the dynamic of the race. all the indications are that he is a few points behind in the swing states. only five or six weeks left to resolve this -- he really needs to shake it up in a significant way. a lot of people are looking for him to put more specifics on the table. go to his website, there is not a lot of policy there. i think a lot of voters who have not made a decision will want to hear what he would do differently from president obama, not simply he thinks that he is doing a bad job. >> how important do we really think this debate will be in the whole campaign? 60 million people watched the first debates in 2008. everybody said the speech of the convention was a big deal. how important these think this will be? >> i think it is pretty significant. i do not think mitt romney has had many opportunities to change this deck. he
